To all of the Viccaro's, I am saddened to learn of "Mr. Viccaro's" passing. He was a major part of my upbringing and I remember that and I am deeply appreciative of it. His actions guided by his huge "heart" is the example we could all learn from. Thank you Sir. RIP Todd.

So sad to hear of Mr. Viccaro's passing. He always took time to ask me about how things were going "down in Florida." From the time I first went away to college to the last time I saw him. Such a sweet man. Our condolences to Evelyn and his wonderful family. May he now rest in the eternal peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

To my dearest family,some things to say. First of all to let you that I arrived okay. I am writing this from heaven where I dwell with God above. Where there's no more tears or sadness, there is just eternal love. Please don't be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I am with every morning, noon and night That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God pi ked me up and hugged me and He said "I welcome you. It's good to have you back ahain, you were missed while you were gone. For my dearest family, they will be here later on. I need you here so badly as part of my big plan. There's so much that we have to do to help our mortal man". Then God gave me a list of things he wished for me to do, And most on that list of inexpensive is to watch and care for you. And I will be beside you every day and week a day year And when you're sad, I amean standing there to wipe away the tear. And when you lie in bed at night,the days chores put to flight, God and I are closest to you In the middle of the night. When I think of my life on earth and all those loving years, Because you're only human, they are bound to bring you some tears. Please do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain, Remember there would be no flowers unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. But if I could tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing going is for certain, though my life on earth is over. I'm am closers to you now that I was was before. And to myour very many years friends, trust God knows what's best, I'm still not fare away from you, I am just beyond the crest. There are rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb, But together we can do it taking good one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too, That as you give unto the world, so that world will give to you. I'd you can help somebody who's in sorrow or in pain, Then you can to God at night," My day was not in vain. And now I am contented that my life it was worthwhile, Know I got as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.: So if you meet somebody who is down and feeling low, When you are walking down the street a day you're got me on your mind, I am walking I your footsteps onky a step behind a step behind. Anot when you fell that gets the breeze or the wind upon your face, That's me giving get you a great big hug or just a soft embace. And when it's time for you to go from that body to be free, Remember you are other going, you are coming to me. And I will always love you from the land use above, We'Lloyd be in touch again P.S. God sends His love. Just lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you you go.
